Elisabethan Rose EDP 100ml
A fragrance fit for a queen. The most regal of rose scents. "A rose is a rose is a rose" - but not all roses are created equal. This rich and decadent spicy rose fragrance is a Tudor Rose - the symbol of Elizabethan England, and inspired by the coming together of houses York and Lancaster, royalty is immortalised in this luxurious Rose scent. As complex as royalty has always been, Elisabethan Rose creates layers and intrigue. Feminine and sensual with luxurious Rose notes, Elisabethan Rose surprises with a playful naughtiness as spices and gourmand notes become gradually apparent. The exotic notes create a truly unique Rose fragrance that is mesmerising and impactful, fit for a queen of elegance and charm.

HOW IT WEARS
Light and delicate, this Rose scent is also rich and robust. We find it tends to last around 6 - 7 hours on the skin and floats around, leaving an air of elevation around the wearer. The Rose notes are the most prominent, however the unique pairing of Hazelnut creates a gorgeous impact when worn. There is a bright Tangerine note that comes alive early in this scent, with Elisabethan Rose settling into a deeper, earthy floral with some time.
As they say, not all Rose scents are created equal. This is a classical Rose Scent, and although Rose is the hero note, elements of spicy Cinnamon and a touch of creamy Almond Oil compliment without over powering the Rose or diminishing its elegance. With sophistication, classical floral elements have been reinvigorated and imagined. The outcome; a scent fit to anoint a Queen.
ABOUT THE BRAND
A classic English perfume house, William Penhaligon owned a barbershop, which became a perfumery in 1870, launching his first fragrance in 1872. This fragrance was created regularly for its many fans until the store was destroyed in The Blitz of 1941. Despite the store being destroyed, the fragrance house endured and was honoured with a Royal Warrant by the Duke of Wellington in 1956 for manufacturing toiletries. Many of the classic scents in Penhaligon's collection remain to this day, while many modern scents have been added. Penhaligon's remain true to William Penhaligon's vision of fine, traditional perfumes and techniques.
